Moulaye Dicko is a nomadic Fulani musician from a land of respectable men, a rolling stone whose journey is the stuff of legends. From a family of fourteen children, he upholds his musical pact to the kings and queens of the ancient Mali Empire, the same source as Salif Keita and Oumou Sangaré. While he was living in Mail, it was their divine voices bearing the griot traditions that first captured his soul. Later, as an adolescent, it was the ardour of Ivorian reggae that pulled at his heartstrings. This double whammy resulted in the creation of his first band, Le Faso Kanou, and an album in 2005. His musical endeavours led him to adopt the n’goni, a typically Malian stringed instrument with a history spanning centuries that he plays with virtuosity, and develop a vocal range from deep bass tones to the clearest celestial sounds.
By 2007, this joyful musician and singer was already being recognized throughout West Africa as a rising star as he continued to release albums in 2010 and 2012. In 2014, his single “Denke Denke,” sung in his native Fula language, quickly became a dance favourite. A regular at world festivals, Dicko Fils gives expression to his theatrical flair by collaborating in theatrical events, such as the masterpiece Antigone, inspired by the life of Nelson Mandela. Since 2018, the Big Apple, like the City of Lights, has been welcoming this Burkinabé ambassador of peace with open arms.
